I am so upset about this situation that I'm going to write my Congressman, Roscoe Bartlett, and see what he can do to rectify this state of affairs. Oh, wait, Bartlett isn't my Congressman anymore. In fact, he didn't even get re-elected. How did that happen? Could it be that our Democratic governor conspired with the Democratic House of Delegates and state Senate to gerrymander Bartlett's district to ensure that he wouldn't be re-elected? I guess it didn't matter to the Democrats that the citizens of Carroll County liked Bartlett. Party politics was more important.
